Differential response in miRNA expression amongst treated single cells with 3 distinct populations.
A qPCR amplification plots of 15 microrafts pierced using unwashed release needle. B qPCR amplification plots of negative controls (water). C qPCR amplification plots of positive controls (10 ng DNA) showing a CT value of 27.
A Representative pyrogram showing the G>A point mutation in the human EGFR gene in a sample with single SW48 cells (positive control). B Representative pyrogram showing absence of the A allele in single HT-29 cells, transferred with the same unwashed magnetic wand as the SW48 cells. C Frequency of the A allele in two pierced HT-29 cells (negative control), two pierced SW48 cells (positive control) and 24 pierced HT-29 cells. Single SW48 cells transferred using a clean magnetic wand (positive control) show a mean frequency of A allele (=point mutation) of 50.7%. Pierced single HT-29 cells transferred using an unwashed magnetic wand and analyzed for the presence of SW48 cell contamination showed a similar frequency of A allele when compared to the pierced single HT-29 cells transferred using the clean magnetic wand (negative control), indicating no contamination between the two cell lines, the arrays and the microrafts.
